There’s a wonderful place in Beacon, NY that a lot of people don’t know about. That’s a real shame because it’s so unique, it should be on everyone’s list of places to visit when heading over to the DIA Beacon Museum. It’s called Hermitage and it sells old poetry books, primarily from the 50’s and 60’s. But it’s also an art space and a small press (see the image at the bottom). The space is carefully curated, so every item makes sense. The first time I stepped in they were playing a John Fahey album that, with the small-cabin-feel, made me fall in love with this place. If you’re ever in the area definitely stop by.
PS- Expect more postings about the Hudson area (very) soon!
